Pete's Online CV

Everyone’s a fruit-and-nutcase

So, for me it’s all about learning and there is SO much to learn in the early 21st century.

Sadly, learning new things is not something that appeals to much of the world and as we’re seeing, it is religion as much as science that is shaping the world (recent terrorist events being prime examples but as you’ll see below, even in America, supposedly one of the more advanced countries – there are some terrifying influences at work). Hopefully with Mr Obama at the helm over in the states things might improve a little. I can’t see him having too much time for the religious right.

I recently watched a pair of TV programs by scientist Richard Dawkin which make me wish we’d already mastered space flight – so that some of us could go and live someplace where we can be sure of continued advancement – not something I think is guaranteed in this world – the program is about his travels in America and the religious head-cases he comes across. I recommend you watch these videos, if you’re short of time stick with the second part. This is worrying and if you’ve not seen them before – an eye-opener!

The Root of all Evil? Part I

The Root of All Evil? Part II

On the same page as the first video is a link to a video featuring a guy called Pastor Richard Haggard – an utter and complete nut. Worth watching to see just how stupid people can be.
